What’d they do here, roast up a Harp? I think I actually prefer Sam Adam’s Black Lager to this Thin, boring and flat.

12oz bottle. Poured a dark black color with a small tan head. Aroma was roasted malts, touch of coffee perhaps? Taste was bitter, dark roasted malts. It wasn’t too bad actually, had no idea they made this until I found it in some random mid-west grocery store in August.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
12oz bottle from Pick’s poured into an English Pint. Pours a dark black with about 1 finger of frothy tan head. Aroma of black roasted malt and a slight hint of coffee. Taste is lightly bitter and very lightly sour. Slight hint of coffee. Light bodied with a thin yet creamy texture. Lively carbonation and not much of a finish. Overall, not too bad. Nothing I would seek out but I would definitely choose this over any BMC.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a thin, but deep dark brown with a medium beige lacing. Overall one dimensional and very similar to a BMC light beer.

Move over Bud Light. You have a toasty competitor.
Nice very dark brown to black pour. OK toasty aroma. Not much to this beer. Disappointed. Really this is an easily drinkable beer however I expected a much fuller body from the likes of Guinness in a black lager.

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Smelled of wet dog. Taste reminiscent of a Spaten Lager, but dark. Drain-pour...and I don’t do that very often.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bought at Sidney’s in Nawlins.. . Pours a deep brown/black .. medium headring, light lacing .. . slick light mouthfeel .. . not getting an awful lot out of the nose or palate- light roast and just a touch of sweet tar.. . no lay-ups .. . wow, a very very simple schwarz- i mean for guinness to make this, quite surprising on how one dimensional it is, that being said- i really liked and enjoyed it and can see maybe why they went with such a thin beer, like a guinness but not on nitro... . . Oh, don’t worry about it. All the teachers lose their car on their first day.

12 ounce bottle from Wine Warehouse in Charlottesville, VA. Pours a clear deep dark red with a medium sized creamy head. Good head retention. Aroma of roasted malts and chocolate. The taste is roasted malts, raisin, chocolate. Thin-medium bodied. Decent.
